TCP-friendly rate control (TFRC) is a congestion control technique that trade-offs responsiveness to the network conditions for a smoother throughput variation. We take advantage of this trade-off by calculating the rate gap between the theoretical TCP throughput and the smoothed TFRC throughput. Any rate gain from this rate gap is then opportunistically used for video coding. We define a frame complexity measure to determine the additional rate to be used from the rate gap and then perform a rate negotiation to determine the target rate for the encoder and the final sending rate. Results show that although this method has a more aggressive sending rate compared to TFRC, it is still TCP friendly, does not contribute too much to network congestion and achieves a reasonable video quality gain over the conventional method.
